what coverage the media gave his point? >> i think it was a direct assault at president obama. you can't blame the israelis for being frustrated. here, you know the white house was scrambling before all of this mess in the middle east started with the violence and the killing of our ambassador. what was really happening is the white house was trying to say the israelis didn't really ask for a meeting in washington with president. when the president goes to the u.n. general assembly he doesn't have a lot of time to meet with the israelis. i've been involved in 8 of the last previous plannings for the president coming to the u.n. under president bush. the simple fact is united states gets to meet with whomever they want to meet with. everybody is requesting to meet you. it's a silly argument we didn't get a formal request to meet in new york and we're going miss each other in washington. if you want the to meet with the israelis, you want to meet with the pakistanis you get to meet with them. >> jon: is the media defending the president on this, kirsten? >> it depends on who you talk to.

wish i could get wendy and her job back. barak obama and mitt romney will slug it out and talk about economy and jobs and what they'll do to make things better. i truly believe president obama wishes things were better. but after watching his plans fail for four years, i doubt he will make them better. i do think mitt romney understands if they don't have a job they can't buy a hamburger and if wendy's isn't selling enough hamburgers and the ever-rising food prices they will close people like my special friend wendy won't have a job. i don't expect barak obama or mitt romney to fix it all by themselves. and i know they can't personally keep every windy's open. and so my friend wendy will have a job. i would like bark obama and mitt romney to be able to look wendy in the eyes and convince her and me that they really understand who she is. and she matters as much as any banker or broker on wall street that got balled out of their trouble it is not just jobs, it is people. they don't care about the politics. they just want to feel good again. and investigators are not saying that the at
